Thanks President Obama

With today’s Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act we can finally move past the dead end arguments about constitutionality and get on with the much harder business of bringing millions of Americans into our health system.  While the politics today are important – conservative chief justice upholding the President’s signature policy achievement – the affect on the real people in North Carolina who desperately need affordable health coverage is far more important.  Today I’m thinking of all the people I, Adam Linker, Nicole Dozier, and the rest of the staff at the Justice Center have met over the last two years who are finally going to get health insurance because of this law.   It hasn’t been easy, but we can be sure things will finally start to get better.
